We all know that visits to award winning wineries and mouth watering restaurants are a must when visiting Sonoma, but what about experiencing things in Sonoma that aren’t always first on all those “to-do” lists? We have three out-of-the box suggestions for your next visit to Sonoma!
Take a Ride Above the Vines
Ever wanted to see Sonoma from a bird’s eye view? Vintage Aircraft gives you the opportunity to experience a scenic open cockpit tour of Sonoma Valley in the front seat of a 1942 WWII biplane! Choose between a gentle tour of the Valley, or add some thrill by adding aerobatic maneuvers. A 1942 North American SNJ-4 “Texan” is also available for a ride; an advanced trainer will give you a peek into what it was like for a WWII fighter pilot in training!
Put the Pedal to the Metal
Thrill seekers and racing aficionados will love the experiences offered at the Simraceway Performance Driving School at the Sonoma Raceway. Get behind the wheel of an Audi TTS or a Formula 3 car with the guidance of a seasoned instructor, and learn the tricks of the world renowned track, or sign up for an intro to go-kart driving. They will surely have an experience for you to satisfy your need for speed!
Take your family back to a simpler time at TrainTown, founded in 1958, located just off the Square in Downtown Sonoma. At TrainTown, you can ride the miniature railroad, make friends with friendly animals at the petting zoo, play in full size train cabooses, and enjoy amusement rides. All aboard!!
